Richard is right on this as he is most of the time when dealing with issues about coal.
He told me the same thing a couple of years ago and I couldn't believe it so I spent a lot of time spinning my wheels finding out for myself. Believe him, the cost of bagged coal is about the about the same were ever you buy it, about $6 or $7 a bag. That being the case what I do is find the closest dealer to my house and if he is around that price I buy from him and go get it in my pickup. My savings comes in that I'm only paying transportation from that business to my house not all the way to the breaker. Unless you can buy a bulk truckload, the cheapest coal, I'd find the closets dealer to your house, let them pay the transportation to that point and either rent a truck and go get it or they might deliver if they are close enough. That's just the way it is. Good luck, Lisa
